DIY Grocery Store Bridal Bouquet

By Kelli Hall, Minted Event Stylist

diy grocery store bouquet I love the idea of a bride and her closest friends gathered on the morning of her wedding day, binding blooms and bonding over a creative project. In this spirit, making your own bouquet requires something of a laissez-faire approach, resulting in a bouquet that can take on a more personal and chic feel. To embrace this idea, I set out to the grocery store in a blind hunt for flowers that could be used to craft a pretty nosegay, worthy of a bride’s big day. I learned that, if you’re open and flexible, a diy bridal bouquet using supermarket flowers is surprisingly doable.

Easy Colorful Crayon Place Cards

He taught me the skills and I turned it into a party DIY. It’s how we roll at casa H+H. If you haven’t looked at a crayon since your wonder years, it’s time to check out the vibrant hues and neon shades that have joined the traditional palette of old.

DIY Paper Flower Bouquet for a Bridal Shower

By Kelli Hall, a Minted Community Designer

I love the tradition of creating a rehearsal bouquet from ribbons collected during a bridal shower, but it can feel a little expected. I recently hosted a close friend’s bridal shower, and for a fresh twist, I gave her a few paper flowers created from the party confetti we used at her event. It stays true to the custom of taking pieces from the bridal shower and crafting a stand-in bouquet for the wedding rehearsal, but instead of a tangle of ribbons on a paper plate, she’ll have pretty handmade paper flowers to carry.

To make these flowers…
